I am a caregiver for my 88 yer old mother with paranoid schizophrenia. I also have two bothers with paranoid schizophrenia as well. My mother suffered for 12 yrs in state hospitals. My brothers,both extremely ill refused help. It is difficult dealing with the delusions that are so real to them. My mothers still believes that I am an imposter and not her daughter. After 13 yrs of caring for her I am still a stranger to her. Thanks for the opportunity to share a little of my story.
